The new Grand National slot gave this gee-gee loving wombat a blinding excuse to hob knob with a load of hat-wearing Sheilas and blokes in suits. Welcome to the famous track at Aintree. I do love a trip to Liverpool, even if it is a long way from Oz.
I couldn’t wait to chase down the action in the world’s best known Steeplechase race, and try to bag myself some major wins, thanks to Inspired Gaming – the people behind the Book of the Irish slot and other classics. Here’s hoping that you have the Luck of the Irish on the horses!
Look and Feel
Holy smoke, this game has gone into full track-side mode with all the sights and sounds of race day recreated right here. I love the sound of those nags running when you spin the reels! If you compare this slot to more traditional fare like the Rainbow 3×3 slot you’ll be blown away.
The Grand National is held at the world famous Aintree course and this slot has done itself proud making a high energy atmosphere to rival the real thing.
Crikey, behind the reels there are huge great horses jumping through a grassy hedge as part of the famous race. The game is set in the middle of the steeplechase race while the reels themselves are backed by the grass of the racetrack.
Cock your ear and hear the crowds and the sounds of the horses galloping their way around the track, and pretty close too by the sounds of it.
Grand National slot takes place over four rows and five reels which give you suped-up 40 pay-lines- so twice as many as other games like the Arcane Reel Chaos slot – we’d say the average in around 25.
This new addition to the slot world has been designed to stay looking good across all your devices.
The game’s fancy gold logo is the highest scoring symbol with five of these giving you a whacking great 500 coin prize. Now we’re talking.
Naturally, the other high scoring icons are five horses and their liveried jockeys.
Leading the field is the world famous Red Rum, chased closely by the other competitors Foinavon, Seagram, West Tip and Aldaniti.
The lower value symbols are the King through Jack of the card deck.
A blue betting chip with a horse and the word “Wild” is just that. This symbol subs for any icon, except the Scatter; a lucky golden horseshoe with “Bonus” written across it.
This game isn’t drowning in extras but it does have a nice big Free Spins game on offer. To get those free games coming down the course you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the Bonus cups. These in turn will give you a tasty 8, 16 or 30 free games.
In the free games mode the Wild takes on a whole new racing mode. For each Wild that lands, it will travel down the reels with each subsequent spin, this means that this icon races down the reels. This mechanic awards you with more winning chances with each free game and that’s hard to refuse.
You don’t have to love the races to get a thrill from Grand National slot and its trophy laden free spins game. 30 free games with sticky Wilds sounds like just the ticket to this wombat. The Grand National races up the RTP scale to a reasonable 95%. This energetic number proves to be a great day out on the slots.
